Mark Hominick signs long-term deal with TKO

Former UFC lightweight Mark Hominck has signed a contract to remain with Canada's TKO, the promotion where he began his mixed martial arts career in 2002.

Hominick, a former TKO featherweight champion, will fight for the organization at TKO 35 at the Bell Centre on October 3. But before his return to the TKO, he will compete in a smaller Canadian event as well as Affliction's new MMA promotion in July.

"I'm so thrilled to be back fighting for the TKO organization and in front of the Montreal crowd. I've always felt like Montreal and TKO was like my home," Hominick said. "More than anything else, I want to be the TKO champion once again and I'm willing to fight whoever they put in front of me to get my title back!"

Hominick was last seen on Feb. 13 in a loss to Josh Grispi at WEC 32 in Albuquerque. Hominick was undefeated in the UFC, posting victories over Yves Edwards and Jorge Gurgel. But in June 2007, he was transferred to UFC's sister promotion and dropped two straight as a WEC competitor.

Hominick, 15-8 overall, has compiled a record of 12-3 with TKO.
